Heat Incentive (RHI) is a government
environmental programme that provides financial incentives to increase
the uptake of renewable heat. There is a domestic and non-domestic
scheme. The Burkhardt gasifier and CHP units are of a size that means
they are used in industrial, i.e. non-domestic settings. Accredited systems receive quarterly payments for 20 years.
Under the non-domestic RHI
scheme, the gasifier
and CHP can be accredited together under the Solid Biomass CHP tariff.
For the quarter beginning 1st July 2017, theSolid Biomass CHP tariff is 4.29p/kWh.
